Half a billion for Trout?

That guy's good, but jeebus cripes.

Trout might actually be worth it. Watching him play ball in person is a once-in-a-life-time treat. He plays hard, at bat, in the field and on the bases.

Well, Gare, he is in my Top Five All-Time* but that is crazy money.
But since he might be the nicest and most deserving I wonít begrudge him.

not in order:
Cobb
Gehrig
Mickey
Clemente
Mike

Was Tris better than Lou? Tough call, Lou gets the sympathy vote. Willie better than Roberto?
Maybe a tougher call. I saw The Mick play, pretty amazing. Saw Willie too and he mighta
been better but Iíd say theyíre a toss up. Unquestionably Top Ten, agreed?

If the Babe ainít in the top 5 there is no justice in the world...

The Babe is his own Top Ten. Dood musta had the hand/eye coordination to grab a fly
by the balls as it flew by, huh?

Yeah, pitchers are another list. Sadly, Clemens would deserve the Top Ten without the juice.
With it, Iím not sympathetic.

2) Willie Mays
3) Barry Bonds
4) Ted Williams
5) Hank Aaron

it's on the internet, so it must be true

Was Tris better than Lou?

Tough call, but there's never been another outfielder like Speaker. He had 139 double plays in his career. 2nd place has 86. Speaker had six unassisted DPs in his career. His .345 BA is sixth all-time. He has the record for career doubles. 3514 hits. His glove was where "triples go to die." The dude was a monster, reading his baseball reference page will blow your mind.
Willie better than Roberto?

Yeah. So was Aaron. Clemente died too young, though.

Phillies signed Bryce Harper for a cool $330 million over 13 years. Too bad he doesn't pitch.

Harper is no bargain, his hype exceeds his production. Notice he avoided the AL where his numbers would have taken an additional hit.
